I can't seem to get on top of my emotions lately. I would have been more than happy to stay at home on Sunday instead of going to the housewarming party we'd planned to drop by, but Hubs forced me to go. Even though I whined and pouted about it the whole time we were getting ready. In the end, I'm glad he made me. I spend an inordinate amount of time planted on the couch watching TV or mindlessly lurking on FB (or playing An.gry B.irds of course), and that is not good. Hubs and I were a pretty social couple once upon a time, but now... well, suffice it to say there was more than one person at the party who noted that it had been a few months since they last saw us. What am I supposed to say to that? "I know, so sorry, ever since my embryo died a little piece of me died too. And it was probably the piece that liked to party."
Anyway, the housewarming party was a good time in the end. Even though there were kids and babies around (I even held my friend's 1 month old for the first time), I had fun. I really need to do more of that. It's just hard to drag myself out of my depression and go. Luckily I have a "mean" husband to push me when I don't have the strength to do the pulling.
After the party I got a photo text from my brother of my new niece, J! I was so shocked, I had no idea my SIL had even gone into labor. They were surprised too. As it turns out, she was only in labor for 5 hours before the baby was born. So we cruised over to the hospital to check her out. Baby J is adorable with a little round face and dark hair, and weighed in at 8 lbs 7 oz.
Which brings me to today. Now, I stand by my declaration that I'm not jealous of my brother and SIL about the baby. I am very happy for them. But the combination of rainy-day Monday and just knowing this C is another bust made me really sad for myself. My mood followed me around until an hour or so after my acupuncture appointment, and thankfully it's pretty much dissipated now. (Really, it's amazing what acu does for my mood, it's a good thing my appointments are usually on Mondays.) Anyway, I guess my point is, I'm feeling very STUCK right now. I know, it's nothing new. And I keep going back and forth between wanting to move on and wanting to hide in my cave. It is very frustrating.
And finally, I completely forgot until I read Busted Kate's blogiversary post that it was my blogiversary this month too! October 8th marked two years since I started this here blog. I apologize that my posts aren't nearly as entertaining as BK's, but I do want to say a huge thank you to all the amazing, wonderful people I've met since that fateful day. Thanks for reading me, thanks for being there for me through the good times and the bad, and thanks for helping make this awful journey a little more bearable. You (yes you!) are the best!
